surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so much. >> it's great to be here be to growing pressure on the senate to do something they haven't done in four years. we are talking about passing a federal budget. republicans in the house trying to force senators to come up with a spending plan will go without pay. mike emanuel is live on capitol hill with more. when we take up the debt ceiling deal? reporter: the senate is likely to take up the bill some time next week. they are r

hagel. he was asked about some of the opposition. and senator john kerry, designated to be the secretary of state, responded. here's a portion from yesterday's confirmation hearings. [video clip] >> i know chuck hagel. he is a strong, patriotic former senator and he will be a strong secretary of defense. i have dealt with him in a number of areas. he's been ahead of the atlantic council. some of the things -- and of the efforts to color his approach on some of these things don't do justice. host: you and many others are in opposition to his nomination. guest: i've been urging president obama not to nominate chuck hagel for secretary of defense. there are plenty of mainstream and moderate to liberal democrats as well. president obama won the election and is entitled to have john kerry as secretary of defense. we're not making a fuss about that at all. -- secretary of state, rather. chuck hagel is not in the mainstream. i agree with john kerry that chuck hagel was a strong, patriotic former senator, reason to become secretary of defense. his defense of him was pretty lame. he could not say
in the week about climate change. you heard john kerry's testimony yesterday. he will have a big part in this. when he is secretary of state. now john boehner is saying the white house has no choice you but to agree with this decision that you have made but will they? >> well, i don't know for sure but i would just say the president's decision is what's in the national interest of our country. well, when you think about job creation, energy independence, protecting the environment, all of that is done with this route. so to me, he is at a stage where he could approve it and should approve it. again, i don't mind him taking 60 days to review it. i understand that but let's don't, we shouldn't have this go on the entire year. it is really now time for the president to act. bill: it's a lot of jobs and goes right to the heart of our energy policy as you would argue. the left considers this product dirty oil. what do you say to that? >> i say to that, look at the big picture. this is about energy independence. you know what? i've talked to young men and women who are over defending our country in
think if you look at these numbers, over 70% of americans like him. he has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. those are pretty good numbers. and i think also there are glimmers of hope for those of us who believe the president has stayed on his side of pennsylvania avenue too much. he said over the past week or two, his daughters are getting older, they don't like hanging around dad as much anymore. >> he's lonely. >> he's lonely. the president used to tell anybody that would listen, i work and then i go upstairs and i'm with my family. you can't trivialize the fact that he is talking about reaching out more, not only to republicans, we hear the same complaint from democratic senators as well, it's a good sign and let's hope things get done. we have to make this city work again. >> tom's point, the perils of a second term, you have thought about this and talked to the president about it. how does he map out these next four years? >> first of all, i want to say i appreciate the priorities that tom laid out. but there's a larger priority of which this is part
or the elderly or the disabled. the next four years are going to be very interesting. let's turn to john nichols, washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine. and john, "the nation" magazine was so impressed with the speech today that there was a lot of rewriting going on. >> yep. and i sometimes have to do a lot of that rewriting. >> remarkably progressive today? >> yeah, it was. we were struck by it. we set a high standard for this president. we don't let him off the hook when we disagree with him. we have editorialized critically about him. but i think there was a pretty strong sense today that not just on domestic policy, but even on some foreign policy, he moved. sometimes the criticism was he kept a little too much of bush, this was a breaking point. a lot of what lingered, some of the people, some of the policies seem to be pushed back now. >> was this the speech that liberals have been waiting for? >> sure it was. >> and now is it the foundation for the next several years? >> well, barack obama is a complicated man. we have to be honest about him. >> he is a deal maker. >> yeah, he
and state. and obviously, john kerry had his first appearance before a senate panel yesterday, getting some tough questions about benghazi as hillary clinton did this week as well. >> reporter: he was, luke. and by all accounts, senator kerry's nomination is really expected to sail through. everyone expects him to be confirmed. but what happened yesterday is that he got some tough questions about secretary clinton's testimony a day earlier on benghazi. what the administration knew, when they knew it. secretary clinton got some tough questions from senator johnson. she responded by saying, what did it matter, at one point, in a heated moment, and senator kerry was asked about that exchange yesterday. take a listen. >> secretary clinton's reaction was, and i quote, "what difference, at this point, does it make?" are you willing to work with me, or do you basically kind of agree with hillary clinton, with that that's kind of yesterday's news and let's move on? >> well, senator, if you're trying to get some daylight between me and secretary clinton, that's not going to happen here today. >> i d

-span. host: john, are you -- sorry. edward, in favor or opposed to term limits? caller: i'm in favor of the people voting them out after one or two terms. this 32 years and 36 and 40 years in the senate and the house, it's ridiculous. a good example of that is trent lott. i watched him this morning on fox news. he's 70 years old, and he says -- he just went back to work. with, he retired from the senate early to avoid a law that said he couldn't -- go join a lobbying firm until five years after his term expired. well, he quit early just to avoid that law. so now he's out there, he says 70 years old, and he just went back to work and he's going to work. host: we got this from cnn politics, got this online. gop senators push for term limits is the headline. a handful of republican senators have proposed a constitutional amendment to limit how long a person may serve in congress. currently there are no term limits for federal lawmakers. but senator jim demint and several of his colleagues advocating service in the senate be limited to 12 years while lawmakers would only be allowed to se
john kerry toe senate confirmation hearing he chaired. it's a safe bet he will get a better reception than the hostile reception they gave hillary clinton on benghazi. after nearly five hours of gruelling testimony, clinton showed rare public emotion talking about the deaths of ambassador chris stevens and three others in benghazi. >> for me, this is not just a matter of policy, it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag drape caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters and the lives left alone to raise their children. >> she took the blame for the tragedy. >> i take responsibility and nobody is more committed to getting this right. >> her republican critics wanted to know what she knew and when she knew it. >> the american people deserve to know answers. they certainly don't deserve false answers. >> asking why repeated security warnings were ignored. eeb a cable ambassador stevens sent her september 11th, the day of the attack. >> these officials were screaming
kristol or john hatoritz. also scott walker who is doing really well up in wisconsin. and all the republicans got up there, and they were saying the same thing. we've got to stop being the stupid party. we've been saying here for six months, we have got to -- and john, i thought, had one of the best points, that we have stifled debate. the conservative movement has stifled debate. and if you go out and you dare to stand out in a crowd, whether it's on taxes or regulations or in the past on immigration, you were completely shunned from the party. finally there's an understanding we've got to grow the party. what we've been saying for quite frankly for years and getting attacked, we want colin powell on our side. we want moderate republicans on our side. if we're going to be the majority party again, we've got to spend the party. >> are you saying they're pushing her out of the spotlight as part of making the stupid party less stupid? >> what i'm saying is that sarah palin represented a time and place in american politics. and not 2008 so much as 2010. and that time is passing u
disfunction of the senate. mcconnell is over the hook. ensi gn paul says i never thought when john boehner told harry reid to go f himself that he actually would. he tweeted that to us at bt show show. between us your comments there. >> this is the difference betweencrats and republicans. okay? when republicans have power, to their credit, they ram through their agenda. look at george bush. won the presidency, rammed through those bush tax cuts in march of his first year in. democrats get power, and they are free to use it. this time, we democrats won the white house. we picked up what? three seats or whatever it was in the senate, held on to the senate and picked up, up to 55 votes in the senate and picked up -- didn't win the house but won eight new seats in the house of representatives. so democrats have the power today. this was the best moment, the best opportunity we will ever have to do something important for this nation in order to get things done no matter which party is in charge and go aheadet rid of the filibuster or at least fix it so that it
years of public service and testimony. senator john mccain a vocal critic of the obama's administration's response to the attack said clinton's answers left him unsatisfied. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda in mali and the recent terror attack in algeria. right now she's making what may be her final appearance on capitol hill introducing john kerry at his confirmation hearing. he is likely to be asked how he would handle those threats as the next secretary of state. >> margaret brennan thank you. "washington post" columnist david ignatius had written extensively about the engazie attacks. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with the questions, whether secretary of state took responsibility, answered all the questions and put this behind her? >> she gave a good account of herself, she gave as good as she got. it was an intense session. i think on the sound
